Our Principal

Welcome Fletcher Families to the 2021-2022 school year! This year we look forward to rededicating our space to the students. Fletcher Elementary School is the heart of the Birdland community and we consistently strive to serve its greatest asset, our children. Thank you to the families and staff for the warm welcome into the role of leading the work of nurturing the curiosity, achievement, and well-being of the students at Fletcher Elementary. 

As a staff, this year we will be reestablishing a student-centered mission and vision for the school that meets the moment and needs of our children as we reemerge from the deep challenges posed by the school closures of the past year and a half. To do this, we will be focusing on our students’ hearts and minds with two main initiatives. Extending the SDUSD goal of all TK-2nd grade students reading at grade level by the end of the year one step further, our goal as a site is to ensure that all students TK-5th are reading at grade level by the end of the year. To do so, we will be diving deep into Literacy-focused best practices and using frequent assessment data to inform personalized intervention and acceleration plans for each student. Additionally, we are going all-in on supporting the social-emotional needs of our students by allocating a significant amount of funding toward ensuring our school counselor is on campus three days a week which exceeds the ideal standard suggested by the American School Counselor Association. We will begin the journey to becoming one of the only Recognized ASCA Model Programs (RAMP) in San Diego Unified School District.
